Video: Arizona Bear Climbs Electric Pole and Sits on Wire, Prompting гeѕсᴜe Effort

The brown bear eventually climbed down without any help from rescuers, according to the Arizona Game and Fish Department in Tucson.

On Sunday, a brown bear climbed up a utility pole in Douglas, Arizona’s downtown area, prompting ece efforts from various animal and law enforcement agencies.
According to the Arizona Game & Fish Department (AZGFD) in Tucson, the ordeal forced the closure of parts of Highway 191 while officers from the Douglas Police Department, Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, and the United States Border Patrol figured out how to get the bear down from its рeсаo position.
In photos shared by the agency, the large mammal can be seen sitting on the wires hanging from an electric pole.

According to wildlife officials, workers from a nearby power company were also on the scene when “the bear ked electrocution.”
The bear—wwho AZGFD Tucson said had actually scaled two utility poles that day—eeventually climbed down on its own accord, causing about two dozen onlookers below to scatter when it wandered back into the wilderness.
There were no “je”s reported.

“We’re always warning people to be #BearAware this time of year, but it looks like this bear needed to be a little more aware, too!” the Arizona Game & Fish Department tweeted from its official account. “Glad everything worked out and everyone—including the bear—was safe!”
